3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pizzeria Toro, Durham. Nice to see some Green Man stuff every now and again, and a couple pints of this went down well. Nice lustrous orange pour, with a silky head. Soft English hops and substantial malts in the nose, definitely leaning strongly in the direction of leaf tea. Nice and smooth in the mouthfeel, not overly bitter on the palate. Not particularly full-flavored and aggressive in the way that’s standard for IPAs these days, so it’s certainly a relatively toned down example of the style (despite the commerical deScription) and that’s no bad thing.

Palais est malté sur un léger épicé, houblonné sortant comme plus noble et de suite indiquant son influence anglaise qui semble bien fonctionner. Le tout reste assez sec, versant vers un léger citronné et amertume.
